Writing Your Skills Summary Section on Your Resume

DOWNLOAD the Resume Writing Worksheet http://www.jobinterviewtools.com/resume-writing-worksheet/ This section is usually a bullet point list of 5-7 of your best skills written as accomplishments. You don’t want to list every skill or accomplishment you have, just the ones that carry the most weight and are relevant to the job you are applying to. Most importantly, you want to demonstrate the skill in a qualifications statement to emphasize how you’ve used it, where you used it, and what you have done with it. If you simply list raw skills by name, e.g., Microsoft Office, WEB Programming, leadership experience, etc. then you’re selling yourself short.

To read more tips visit - https://www.zipjob.com/blog/skills-to-put-on-resume/ With only a page or two to show potential employers what you got, every section on your resume is incredibly important. The “skills” section is no different, yet, most people don't spend as much time perfecting this section of their resume as they should. You're probably thinking, “I listed the things I’m good at, what else can I possibly do?” First of all, its very important to match your skills with what the job description says. If a job description says they’re looking for someone with knowledge of Photoshop and illustrator, be sure to list those under skills. You should have a combination of hard and soft skills on your resume. What's the difference between hard and soft skills? “Hard” skills are learned, technical and quantifiable which are usually required to be successful in a job. Examples of hard skills to include on a resume are - Design Skills Computer Skills Licenses or Certifications And Foreign languages “Soft” skills are interpersonal skills, character traits and communications skills. They are generally more vague and open to interpretation. Examples of soft skills to include on a resume are - Problem solving Critical thinking Negotiation skills Time management And Leadership Remember to order your skill list in an easy-to-read manner and group similar skills together. With a thorough job description analysis and careful thought, your resume’s skill section could be the thing that gets you that interview!
